LOS ANGELES, Jan. 21 (UPI) -- Actor David Duchovny said he would be up for a reboot of The X-Files if it was for a limited run.

Duchovny, who played FBI Special Agent Fox Mulder in the original series, said he would be willing to reprise his role for a reboot.

In an interview with USA Today, Duchovny said he'd be "more than happy and excited to bring it back and do it again with Gillian [Anderson] and Chris [Carter]."

"I'm assuming that it will happen sooner rather than later now. We'll see what form, how many [episodes]. Certainly I can't nor would I be interested in doing a full season. It will be in some kind of limited form. We're all old, we don't have the energy for a full season," he said Tuesday.

The 54-year-old actor's comments came after it circulated that Fox chairmen and CEOs Dana Walden and Gary Newman were considering a reboot the hit paranormal show which ran from 1993 to 2002.

"Gary and I both worked [at 20th Century Fox Television] through the entire run of The X Files," Walden told Entertainment Weekly. "It was a great experience. We've maintained good relationships with Chris, David and Gillian. We're very hopeful, but it's hard. The actors are very busy. They have a lot going on. Chris has a lot on his plate, so it's just trying to carve out the time."
